I just wanted to do a quick review of my new boyfriend. His name is Mask. Mask of Magnaminty. We met in this overwhelmingly potent smelling store called LUSH.
Anyways…back to reality.
MASK OF MAGNAMINTY
“Mask of Magnaminty isn’t technically a daily ‘facial wash’; it’s actually a deep cleansing face and back mask. China clay and fresh peppermint reach deep down to pull the debris from your pores, giving you that delightful tingly-clean sensation. We add loads of aduki beans to exfoliate flaky or dry skin, vanilla absolute to calm redness and honey to soothe. Our inventors created Mask of Magnaminty to be the ‘ultimate face mask’, intense but not harsh or abrasive on the skin. We recommend using Mask of Magnaminty weekly to keep the skin in good condition.” – LUSH website
Umm…If I could eat this stuff, I would. It smells unreal. I wish I could buy candles in the same fresh, pepperminty scent.
This mask is the perfect green colour. You always see girls in movies and TV shows with green masks, but the rest of mine are black. I guess I finally found the perfect stereotypical mask!
Feel (first of all, I’d like to mention up front that I have VERY sensitive skin. I have had multiple instances of breaking out in allergic reactions from products):
Upon application, the mask feels nice and cold and I can feel it calming down my trouble spots immediately. (I keep mine in the fridge for some added coolness). After a couple of minutes it starts to feel a bit tingly, but not in a bad way. I leave it on for a bit longer than listed – about 15 minutes, because I love how it feels!
The mask is a bit annoying to rinse off, but I get all decent ones are! My skin feels soft and I can instantly tell a difference in how much less oil is visible which is great. After the first couple of times using it (I’ve been using it as a spot treatment mostly), my skin did break out a bit the following day, but I can only assume thats from the mask pulling all the yummy gunk to the surface. The following day and ever since, those patches have been smooth and clear.
I’m in love with this mask, and will absolutely repurchase. I’m so glad I finally tried it out after seeing it everywhere- and I think after this experience I’m more eager to try out some more LUSH skincare products. I’d love to hear your suggestions!
What’s your favourite LUSH product, or which ones are you dying to try?
